Speech-Language Therapy

Community HealthCare System’s speech-language therapy team provides speech and language evaluations and speech therapy for patients of all ages.

To provide you with the best care possible, our services are:

  • Based on the most current speech pathology research and best practices.
  • Provided in a family centered, caring environment.

We treat patients with:

  • Receptive language delays or disorders – difficulty understanding spoken or written information.
  • Expressive language delays or disorders – difficulty using language (verbal, non-verbal or written) to communicate with others.
  • Social-communication disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders.
  • Cognitive-linguistic deficits, such as memory impairment.
  • Articulation and phonological disorders – difficulty producing speech sounds correctly.
  • Motor speech disorders, such as apraxia – difficulty coordinating muscle movements to produce speech.
  • Voice disorders – problems with the voice, such as hoarseness or loss of voice.
  • Resonance and airflow disorders, such as speech problems that may occur for children with cleft palate.
  • Feeding and swallowing disorders.
  • Fluency disorders, such as stuttering.
  • Hearing loss, who may benefit from aural rehabilitation.
  • Severe communication disorders, who may benefit from augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

It is also important to have your hearing evaluated to rule out hearing loss. To schedule a hearing evaluation, please contact 785-889-4657, ext. 1164.
